Book Description Nassim Nicholas Taleb changed the game with his New York Times best-seller The Black Swan. Here he collects a series of meditations and aphorisms that succinctly express his major philosophies while illustrating the many self-defeating delusions we often live under. With wit and wisdom Taleb shows how to overcome these illusions and live a more fulfilling life. “[Taleb writes] in a style that owes as much to Stephen Colbert as it does to Michel de Montaigne.”—Wall Street Journal
